With many thanks to Thor Leslie for sharing this utility. In a nutshell, Memory Points allows you to store, recall, name and re-use up to five sets of coordinate values. A great addition for users who are finding themselves constantly writing down coordinates, or picking and selecting values from the message center.
Memory Points allows you to collect data point values and store up to five sets of coordinate values in a VBA form. Once captured, you can modify the points graphically or edit them directly in the form. For example, you could add or subtract values to the stored coordinates which may be helpful when placing subsequent elements. One really cool function of this application is the ability to identify a stored coordinate with a named value as the graphic below shows.
Other functions of this utility include:Send any stored coordinate as a tentative point to MicroStation.Send a datapoint or tentative point to the previous issued data point when drawing.Send either a datapoint or tentative point to XY=0,0,0Full instructions can be found in the document included in the zip file. Enjoy!
